My self-summary
Hey, my name's Ryan.

I was born and raised in Chicago, but moved to California for school, a teaching position, the weather, and the eclectic lifestyle. My life has been full of interesting stories and I'm just working as hard as I can to experience more, and prove myself to be successful. There's tons of stuff I enjoy doing, but above all else is my passion for music and the arts. I like to think I'm an old fashioned romantic at heart, and will often times do whatever it takes to make someone happy. I'm also a huge fan of tradition when it comes to the holidays. I like to decorate the house, celebrate the seasons, and fill the house with the smell of baking cookies, or a well-thought-out dinner. I would categorically fall into the role that of a stereotypical 1920's housewife, but I find it rewarding; it warms my heart. I like to think I'm extremely patient, driven, empathetic, and sentimental.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently in residence for my BFA in clarinet performance as well as composition with an emphasis in film-scoring. I was also accepted into the dance program at my school, so I am also doing interdisciplinary study in contemporary technique and choreography. In addition to going to school full-time, I currently hold a teaching position at a local high school as a clarinet coach and woodwind instructor, in addition to teaching a handful of clarinet students privately. I'm also relatively fluent in American Sign Language and am planning on finishing my interpreting certification in the next few years. I also work full-time as a server. Haha. It's usually safe to say that if I'm not at school, I'm working, composing, or practicing.

The first things people usually notice about me
That I smile a lot, haha, or my eyes, probably because they change color a lot between hazel, green, and yellow.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really don't read that often, but I currently have a good line-up of books that I'm planning to read in various music-related subjects.

Kill Bill
Homeless to Harvard: A Liz Murray Story
Memoirs of a Geisha
Small Time Crooks
Anchor Man
...I'm sure there's more that I can't think of...I'm not that hard to please when it comes to watching movies.

I Love Lucy
Golden Girls
Family Guy & American Dad
Everything on The Food Network

I really do measure the essence of my life through music. I will only list my top 3 for now, haha.
- Nobuo Uematsu
- J.S. Bach
- Michael Giacchino far as food is concerned, and as aforementioned, the Food Network is pretty much the only channel on in my house. I love to cook when I have time...I believe it's safe to say that music, and food are the ways to my heart.
The six things I could never do without
1. My two cats, Jack & Toby =^.^=
2. My clarinets
3. A piano
4. Dance
5. The ability to dream
6. Food and/or water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a great deal of time thinking about if the work I put into various aspects of my life is in someway justified at the end of each day. I like to always beleive it is. I spend a lot of time thinking about the music I write, and likewise, the music I study and perform. I think about my students, about my long and short-term goals, as well as attempt to plan out each day as much as possible.

I often think of the fact that I don't know a great deal of things, and how I anticipate living the rest of my life incessantly learning new things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either practicing clarinet, piano, doing homework, sleeping, or working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Due to a rather interesting upbringing, I've formed a complex where not succeeding in my long-term goals is simply not an option. I often times find myself vulnerable and weak in the wake of my accomplishments as a result of not giving myself enough credit.
